![CDATA[
When the MGA arrived in 1955, it must have come as quite a shock to MG aficionados who had become accustomed to the pre-war look of the company's sports cars. It was a complete departure in styling and its beautiful streamlined body was right up to the minute in terms of appearance. It was powered by a new engine; MG had decided that the old XPAG unit had had its day and so introduced a much more modern B-series engine that had made its debut in the recently announced Magnette Saloon. The 'A' was officially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1955. Only 5,869 cars were sold on the home market, giving the MGA the highest export percentage of any British car. The MGA was replaced by the MGB in May 1962.
This MGA roadster runs and drives although it is in need of restoration work. Finished in black with black interior she has all the right credentials for a good project. Parts are easily obtainable from the MGA Owners Club and the cars are simple to work on, making this an ideal winter task for a good DIY mechanic. With Austin Healey prices continuing to increase, MGA’s are becoming more desirable. This example has been owned by the registered keeper for the last 16 years and is supplied with a V5C registration document and a hardtop.
